A developer will go before the Chicago Plan Commission Thursday seeking approval to increase the number of units in a planned Downtown apartment building to 81 from 60.

The developer, a Delaware limited liability corporation known as CCA MDA II LLC, needs city permission to increase the number of apartments proposed at 171 North Wabash Avenue over what was presented to the city in 2016, according to Curbed.

A venture led by Chicago-based developer Mark Ordower of Ogden Properties was behind plans for the building in 2015 but it’s unclear if either is still involved with it. Ordower did not return calls seeking comment.

In addition to the apartments, the seven-story building would have 5,500 square feet of ground floor retail and a rooftop pool deck.

The building would be linked by a sixth-floor bridge to the 42-story MDA City Club Apartments building next door at 63 East Lake Street, according to Ald. Brendan Reilly (42nd), and the buildings would share other amenities.

Designed by Chicago’s Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, the building would include “vertical planted areas” designed to cover portions of the facade with evergreen ivy and an irrigation system that can provide heated water during the colder months. [Curbed]John O’Brien
